Paper Abstract

On the basis of processing and analysis of the sounding data of tropical cyclones in the Norther Atlantic of 1998 and 1999 made by the microwave radiometer SSM/1 on board the USA DMSP satellites an analysis was made of the microwave radiometric determination of the surface wind field characteristics in the vicinity of a cyclone with the use of the radiation-wind models available. A semiempirical method is proposed for determining the characteristics of the tropical cyclone central zone, the effective dimensions of the hurricane wind zone and maximum wind velocities in their number, based on the key characteristics of the system 'ocean-atmosphere' revealed by the authors at different wavelengths.
